Now for you Juniors – I realize that I have not updated this for a little while (sorry) but now that you’re well into a project I feel like I should post some resources for you.
As you should know, we have been looking at the use of Ethos, Logos and Pathos in speeches.
We began with a refresher PPT (Jan 3 – logos ethos pathos) and a short assignment (review – ethos, logos and pathos) allowing for some practice. Then you applied what you learned to an analysis of the 1st 15 minutes of the movie An Inconvenient Truth (inconvenient truth – 1st 15 minutes).
After watching the beginning of the film, you were assigned to write a 1 paragraph explanation of how Al Gore (speaker) used ethos, logos and pathos, to convey his message to the people of the world (audience).
The next speech we looked at was a short address to the United Nations General convention by Arnold Schwarzenegger (Arnold at the UN). You were given a similar write-up assignment for this one as well. The audio can be found here: http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/arnoldschwarzeneggerunitednations.htm
Finally, we transitioned into the first of two major assessments for this unit: a group-based presentation of an assigned speech.
Here are the assigned groups:
